Makerere cuts student enrollment by 5,000

Makerere University Vice Chancellor Barnabas Nawangwe has announced that the university will reduce its student intake by 5,000 for the upcoming academic year 2023/2024, which starts in August.

 


The University primarily will exclude undergraduates seeking a liberal arts diploma or first degree, but science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEP) course placement is not affected. 


These changes will take place when the Senate is scheduled for Thursday, March 16, 2023. The Senate is expected to approve the new changes on that date.


According to Professor Nawangwe, the change reflects the transformation of Uganda's oldest public university, Makerere, into a research institution. 



He said:

"We use the same criteria. Once we have the number of students admitted to each program, we take it and round off the rest. The criteria don't change, just the limits are higher."
